Still Haven't Run Dishwasher

January 14th, 2012 at 07:37 pm

So tonight I stopped at Home Depot to get the faucet adapter so I could actually run my dishwasher. .... They don't carry them! The guy I spoke with suggested I try Ace on Monday. I will call them before going, because that would mean an extra trip which I'd really rather not make!!

I'm also going to write Amazon's customer service and shake some cages about why this part was not included as advertised.


I decided to skip Sabbath School today - the extra rest was really needed. I stayed after for potluck, and then went to the nursing home and sang with three other people. We all had about the same level of singing skill (namely, not much) but the people still seemed to appreciate it. Smile

After the nursing home our group went to the hospital to visit the pastor's wife who'd just had a baby girl this morning (1:02 a.m. by c-section after 17 hrs hard labor - her tail bone was twisted??) What a sweet little thing. Smile

After Home Depot I went to Walmart where I returned the watch and the skin moisturizer/spf. The watch I returned because I found my other one, and the moisturizer because I used it once and it got in my eyes and burned (plus I was having a really hard time stomaching paying almost $11 for something like that.)

Since my dishwasher will still be out of commission for who knows how long, I bought a good bit of canned soups and microwavable meals, as well as some plasticware. If I end up actually getting dishes washed by hand tomorrow and don't need the plasticware, I'll just take it back. Smile

I got a refund of $17.08, and spent $47.xx on grocery type items. That pretty much wipes out my grocery budget for January (except for my $100 Costco card). I think though that I have enough food in the house to last til February, with or without the convenience of the dishwasher. Smile

Oh! The organist who was in a car accident last week was in church today. He had a neck brace on and seemed to still be in a bit of pain. He has a daughter in town who is helping him out with meals and such not.

I also found out today that most people here had assumed I was in my early to mid-twenties. :roll eyes: The head elder told me, "Whatever you're washing you're face with, keep doing it!" lol! Ummm, I don't really wash my face with anything ... I also hardly ever wear makeup.. if I do, I might use Cetaphil. I also sometimes use ponds cold cream (I think Ima mentioned once that she uses it ...) But more often than not I do *nothing* in regards to skin care. Which probably is why I was having such a hard time paying nearly $11 for a moisturizer/spf cream. Big Grin

    How annoying. I sure hope you get that dishwasher running soon!

    You and I are in the same boat, looking young. (Which means it is hard to be taken seriously, professionally). I just hope with all the age discrimination I am seeing among friends and relatives that "youthful appearance" helps me in the long run. Though some people just seem to age overnight, so it's no real promise of that!

    I also don't wear makeup or use anything - I figure that's part of the trick. Not to cover your face in chemicals and all that.

    Sorry the dishwasher has been such a pain! Hopefully you get it up and running one of these days...

    Yes, that is all I have used my entire life, ponds cold cream and nothing else. When I was in my 30's , people thought I was much, much younger.

    Ugh! I hope you can get that dishwasher up and running soon! I can't wait to find out how it works for you. Smile
    I was carded last weekend when DH and I went out. Sympathy carding?? I don't know, but I'll take it.

    You and I and MM are all around the same age. I don't think I look much older than I did in high school. I don't wear makeup either. Every time someone tells me I should, I ask "Why? Do I need to?" Just can't get anyone to answer that... Wink
